Malibu vs. Camry: Which Midsize Sedan Should You Choose?

According to carsMalibu.com, the midsize sedan is the biggest selling segment in the US car market. It’s certainly not a popularity contest when everyone has their own purpose for a midsize sedan: from the baby’s car seat, to the teenager’s move to college, to a simple trip to the city. So how are you supposed to choose when you may need a more technology-savvy vehicle and your neighbor would just like a midsize sedan with a little more power? We’ll show you how the Toyota Camry and the Chevrolet Malibu stack up according to price, power, dimensions, exterior, interior, safety, fuel, and warranty.

Three Ways to Get the Best Deal on Black Friday

Black Friday SaleBlack Friday isn’t a day—it’s a month-long thrill of savings!  There’s such a rush from getting everything you want for Christmas without breaking the bank on that ridiculously large smart TV, the massive Lagostina cookware set, or the sleek Corvette you’ve been eying. But you’ve got to be smart to get the best deal: every seasoned Black Friday shopper knows to research before the big day, and Win Kelly’s got you covered for your best plan of attack. Here’s three ways to get the best deal in Maryland whether you’re from Baltimore, Washington DC, Clarksville or Columbia!

1. Get A Head Start  eggcited

Are you waiting for November 27th to start Black Friday shopping? Because you’ve got it all wrong. Stores like Walgreens and Toys ‘R Us have early bird freebies, and so does Win Kelly. The biggest tip we can give you is to do your research and get ahead of the pack. Black Friday is a frenzy of sales and is definitely time-sensitive:  you have to get the real savings while they last. Win Kelly’s Black Friday sale is on now and ends Dec 1st. Don’t wait until the last moment or the deal you really want will be gone.

2. Is it Really A Deal?no20chocolate1

Sometimes the “deal” isn’t really a deal. Look at any international travel “deal” to prove that one; better prices on international flights are usually found around the first few months of the year with no incentive for companies to reduce their prices around Christmas. Similar issues arise with exercise equipment, chocolates, and furniture.  For Win Kelly, it’s very different: we need to sell 660 vehicles by the end of the year, which is why you are seeing such drastic reductions. These are real savings that transfer to the customer.

sparta earlybird3. There is a Limited Supply of the Good Stuff 

When you find a great freebie, grab it! Now, this does not mean you go crazy and take down the other earlybirds who came in time for the good free gifts a la 300, but realize that there’s only so much of the fun freebies to go around. Costco is giving out a limited amount of cookbooks, jcpenny is only giving snowglobes to the first few customers, and  Win Kelly only has 200 $750 gift certificates.

And those are Win Kelly’s lessons to shop like a Black Friday pro! Check out Win Kelly’s Black Friday deals on hundreds of Buicks, GMCs, and Chevrolets below.
